Event Details

Funders for LGBTQ Issues is pleased to co-sponsor the next FCAA CONNECT webinar in partnership with Funders Together to End Homelessness, and featuring Point Source Youth and ViiV Healthcare. The webinar will discuss how COVID-19 has exposed the inequity and relationship between housing and healthcare.

More than 3.5 million young adults in the U.S. experience homelessness or housing instability each year. This population – including LGBTQ and/or HIV positive young adults experiencing homelessness, as well as Black and Brown young adults experiencing homelessness – is also disproportionately impacted by COVID-19. “Shelter in place” is simply not an option for people who do not have stable housing, further exposing the inequity and relationship between housing and healthcare.

Grounded in the belief that “housing is healthcare,” this webinar will explore solutions to end youth homelessness that will help support young people living with, and at risk for, HIV and COVID-19.

Discussion questions to include:

  • There are many important direct service providers supporting these communities, but how do we scale up solutions to end youth homelessness?
  • What is a better way to use government funds for these efforts?
  •  What can private funders do to support the solution that “housing is healthcare”?

Panelist:
Moderator: Amelia Korangy, ViiV Healthcare
Larry Cohen, Point Source Youth
Mahlon Randolph, Public Health Educator/Community
Gabriel Maldonado, TruEvolution


Please note: this webinar is only open to representatives of funding or philanthropy-serving organizations.
